Since Hideo Kojima left Konami and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launched last September, Konami has seemed to be bowing out of the console video game market. With barely a beep from them for almost a whole year, aside from Pachinko announcements, they announced a surprise today from Gamescom. Metal Gear Survive is the next game in the series.
The game takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the demo-like prequel to the proper iteration of MGSV. Metal Gear Survive takes place in an alternate timeline where the events of The Phantom Pain never happened.
Based on the press release and the trailer, Konami’s Metal Gear Survive will be a co-op style survival game with some sort of zombie-like creatures. Will this survivalist mentality be in the form of a Resident Evil, or a No Man’s Sky approach to mechanics, or even something in-between?
There’s not much to go on now, but if you want a quick glimpse, watch the trailer below.
Metal Gear Survive is due out in 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
